Whole30 Challenge


As part of our New Years Resolutions, David and I have decided to do the Whole30 program. Based on the paleo diet and Whole9, the Whole30 is a 30 day eating program that challenges you to strip out all of the foods that may be negatively affecting your health in hopes that it will change the way you eat for the rest of your life. Sounds amazing right?

The concept of Whole30 is simple:
  • Eat real food – meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats from fruits, oils, nuts and seeds
  • Do not consume added sugar of any kind, real or artificial
  • Do not consume alcohol
  • Do not eat grains
  • Do not eat legumes
  • Do not eat dairy
  • Do not consume carrageenan, MSG or sulfites
  • Do not eat white potatoes
  • Do not paleo-ify dessert or junk food choices
  • No cheating!

We gave ourselves a week of grace to ensure all of the leftover holiday goodies would be out of the house and are officially starting today. As we go along I will post updates, recipes and menus.

Wish us luck!
